Going Bananas for Fair Trade Fortnight

Fairtrade Fornight is from Monday 24 February to Sunday 9 March.  In 2014 the theme is bananas. There’s a price war and producers are suffering.

The social justice groups is working on the following programme with Kath Connelly from the Co-op movement to promote a number of fairtrade initiatives in the village. We’re planning to work in the  local schools to offer assemblies, lessons and a fairtrade competition. At the same time we’ll be promoting Fairtrade fornight alal round the village.
